The Voice Speaks

By Patrick Van Roy On May 24th, 2020 at 11:53 pm

Has nothing to do with our regular conversations, but well worth one.

Hmm

Last week a senior United States Senator gave a speech stating that the IRS should be used to target and punish groups that disagree with the Democratic Party’s political agenda.  Sen. Chuck Schumer stated, “…there are many things that can be done administratively by the IRS and other government agencies — we must redouble those efforts immediately.”

BEAUTY MATTERS

By Pete Moore On May 24th, 2020 at 8:34 pm

A century ago someone imported encaustic tiles from Britain and a lovely floor was laid in New Jersey. Sixty years later a thug and barbarian overlaid them with nasty vinyl tiles. It will never cease to both amaze and infuriate how barbarism has so often obliterated beauty. I don’t even want to know why brutalists do it. Narcissism must lie at the root of it. Narcissism fuels all brutalists and other vandals. The only saving grace is that the tiles weren’t ripped up first.

BORIS RESPONDS TO THE PRESS

By Pete Moore On May 24th, 2020 at 8:13 pm

Mounties get their man. HM Gutter Press are not Mounties, at least not tonight. Dominic Cummings acted reasonably and withing the rules, Boris right fully said at the press briefing. He’s going nowhere. Then the PM took a question or two before walking off, leaving a volcanically angry media behind.

The lesson they won’t learn, because they are stuck on broadcast and never listen, is that “We made him look bad” doesn’t cut it as a reason for a sacking or a resignation.

Music for a Sunday Afternoon

I was wandering down Memories Lane, diverted  at Modern Music, waved a wand or two, and came up with this; perfect for a Sunday afternoon:-

Memorial Weekend

By Patrick Van Roy On May 24th, 2020 at 12:54 pm

We Stand for our Flag, and drop and bend a knee to pray for those who have given their lives.

All across the Country 1000s of Churches are defying their Governors and are open today for Mass. The President has Declared Churches, Synagogues, and Mosques as Essential, however whether or not they are allowed to open is up to the individual Governors of each State.

This Weekend is Also the kick off to every Beach Town in America. This year however due to some Governors 1000s of  Businesses will never open their doors again. This weekend is as important to that industry as Black Friday is to Retail. All across the Country business after businesses are being boarded shut for good.

This Memorial Day is not just a grieving for those who gave their lives for our country, but for those killed by China, and those who lives have been Destroyed by the cure.

No Patriot fare today instead I take you to Church for a Prayer that fits with this weekend this year.

 

SECONDS OUT…..

Guest Post by Paul

I read an interesting story today in the Irish Times. I think it’s relevant as it spans a lot of the themes discussed here on ATW, spin, fake news, libel laws, conspiracy theories, crime in Ireland, media manipulation etc. 

The story involves Daniel Kinahan, alleged prominent player in a gangland feud in Ireland which has cost the lives of some twenty people:

Hutch–Kinahan feud

The Hutch–Kinahan feud is a major feud between two criminal organizations in the Republic of Ireland that has resulted in the deaths of twenty people.[1] The Hutch gang, led by Gerry Hutch, and the Kinahan Family, led by Christy Kinahan, are the main participants.

The feud has taken the form of a large number of attacks, mostly shootings, on people associated with the Hutch and Kinahan gangs (though some have apparently been cases of mistaken identity). Most attacks have been in Ireland, but some in Spain.

And his sophisticated attempts to reinvent himself as an international boxing promoter. Rather than explain the story I’ll just include the link and leave you to form your own conclusions:

Enjoy a distraction.

Donut Operator is always worth the watch….. the best humor, to me.

It’ll definitely be a different perspective than you’re used to seeing.

WHAT? WHERE?

Fancy building a municipal water and sewerage works inspired by Athens. The Fairmount Water Works in Philadelphia, designed in 1812 by Frederick Graff, built 1812-1872, as a response to the yellow fever epidemics of the 18th-Century.

BIDEN: “BACK TO THE PLANTATION WID YOU”

By Pete Moore On May 23rd, 2020 at 6:37 pm

Ain’t no runaways getting off the Democrat plantation while Joe Biden’s cracking that whip. He’s rounding’em up good and proper. They ain’t getting outta them chains on his watch.

“You ain’t black if you vote for dat orange cracka!” he tells them house voters. “What you doing, thinking that you can vote how you like. Getouttahere mofo!” Or something like that. China Joe appeared to slide into an accent when he said it, the kind of accent white liberal multi-millionaires hear when blacks people speak.

The years pass, but the party of slavery and Jim Crow laws just can’t fully absorb the idea of blacks thinking for themselves, it seems. It turns out that Kanye West was right all along –
